I think I truly believe it after 4 positive tests!!!!!!! lol
Yes! Baby #8 is on the way! We are so excited!!!!!
Maybe this explains why I have not lost any weight yet even though I have been doing SO well on the THM plan!!!!
I am so VERY excited about a pregnancy the THM way! I am also very happy that I have taken care of myself SO well this last year. I am not at the weight I wanted to be at but I am not terrible either. I have been working out all year so I can EASILY keep that up in this pregnancy! I am super excited to see how fit I can stay. I am REALLY hoping to end this pregnancy at a lower weight than I am right now. NOT by dieting or cutting nutrition,I would NEVER risk the health of my baby! I am hoping to do it by eating extremely healthy and working out my entire pregnancy. NOT just walking but REALLY keeping up the intensity in my exercise. I have been researching and there is NO reason at all that a pregnant Mamma has to quit working out!
So.......A slight change in plans but a very welcome one!!!!! I am listing my goals for this pregnancy below. I want to be able to come back and see them later.
1.Eat minimal sugar/white flour.THM plan all the way except for the occasional special treats on date night and other occasions. I am still going to be very careful though to stick with plan for the most part,even when I cheat.
2.End this pregnancy in the 180's. I ended my very first pregnancy at 198. This will be my 8th pregnancy and considering where I started (187),ending in the 180's would be beyond fantastic!!!!!!
3.Lose inches! I know I will gain baby weight but I want to be toning and losing excess fat in the rest of my body at the same time! I want to end up in BETTER shape at the end of this pregnancy (inch wise) than when I started!!!
4.Exercise faithfully including LOTS of deep squats. I have been on a mission for the last year to get my entire body toned and fit,there is NO reason that pregnancy has to interupt this.
5.Get excellent sleep. This is a HUGE issue for me that I am determined to change.
